Uber iPhone app update 1.0.45
The latest Uber iPhone app update has been released into the App Store and we’re super excited to unveil one of our most requested features ever: pre-request ETAs. Woot woot!
Previously, we would give riders an indication of ETA only after they’ve requested. However, with this version of the app, we provide riders with an estimated ETA to the nearest available car before they make a request (see below).
We’re hopeful that these pre-trip ETAs will remove much of the stress associated with times of high demand, and let you make informed decisions about how quickly to finish your drink / ask for the check before requesting your car.
Also in this version of the app, we’ve added the ability to update your credit card details on the go – something that previously could only be done via our website.
A typical ride: you request, have small talk with your driver, and safely get where you need to go. For Jonathan, a driver-partner in California, his rides are anything but ordinary — he wants his passengers to have fun and turned each trip into a dance party — and now the latest viral video. We caught up with the man in front of the cam to learn more about what inspired him to create this feel-good video.
A new report conducted in partnership with Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) reveals that when empowered with more transportation options like Uber, people are making better choices that save lives.
New technologies are creating opportunities no one could have imagined. To understand Uber’s place in that trend, we commissioned a survey of our driver-partners and put together a comprehensive analysis.
